  1. Riding off the highway?

    I am curious, I have a dual sport. There is a complete traffic jam and I don't want to sit in the line-up for who knows how long. Say I decide to ride a couple of feet further over and not on the shoulder where an automobile can drive, but riding on the dirt through the grass to avoid a ticket. ...

  3. Daylight Sctrictness

    Hey, guys. I recently got my Motorcycle Learner's. The sun disappears early around this time of the year, but I'm curious for when it comes April or something. I was wondering how strict the 'daylight' restriction is. I plan to go to work with my bike and I'm usually off around 6, but...

  8. Left turn on red light at two specific locations

    I know that the question has been asked a few times, but I cross these intersections every day and it seems that there is some contradicting information. In the ICBC road sense manual it says: "Steady Red light A red light means that you must come to a complete stop. You must wait for the...

  9. How lenient are police officers towards fender eliminators/integrated tail lights?

    This bike I'm picking up soon has both integrated tail lights and fender eliminator (the one that tucks near the rear shock, but has a light). The owner doesn't have stock parts. He told me he's been through many road blocks and rode past many police officers without any problems. Is this...

    Went to court Monday on a speeding charge (car). For a couple of the cases before mine, a different cop than the one that was present at the time of the offense was there to ask for an adjournment of the case.

  15. What kind of trouble for having a plate flipper?

    You see many plate flippers on the market, if an officer saw this device on your bike while you were pulled over or at a road block but it was not in use ( they never saw it flipped) what would they be able to do about that? And what about if you were caught using it?

  18. Question dispute and no show?

I figure I would obviously lose my dispute and the ticket and its full fine amount would remain in full effect right? ...

  25. Out of Province rider and the new 7 day impound.

    If someone from Alberta is caught going the 40 over the limit, and is given the huge fine for it, what about the 7 day MANDITORY impound? Friend of mine say's they cannot impound a vehicle registered outside BC. Any truth to that? Thanks
